When I first came to America, I would just buy spices from the local grocery store down the street. Now, after years of cooking with SCD, along with having access to groceries that stock the raw ingredients, I make my own spice mixture to use in curries and other Indian-inspired dishes, just the way my mother and grandmother did before me. - Nilou
